EGYPT: WE WILL NOT ALLOW THE ETHIOPIAN RENAISSANCE DAM TO BE FILLED THIS YEAR

 
 

Egypt's Minister of Irrigation and Water Resources, Mohamed Abdelati, said that the Nahdha Dam negotiations with Ethiopia reached a "dead end".

"This is impossible and the solution is to negotiate, and Ethiopia has not started to fill the dam so far and we will not allow it to be filled this year," he said in a press statement Saturday. .

He pointed out that "Egypt began to feel the impact of the dam on the downstream countries since May 2013, and there was negotiation of terms of reference for the selection of the company and the way to deal with them."

The Egyptian minister pointed out that it was assumed that "Egypt sits with Sudan and Ethiopia to make a statement about the dam but that a substantial disagreement prevented it."

Egypt announced two weeks ago the freezing of technical negotiations with Sudan and Ethiopia after a tripartite meeting in Cairo, after the Egyptian officials rejected the amendments of the two countries on the studies of the dam and its filling and operation.

Egypt fears possible negative impacts of the Ethiopian dam on its 55.5 billion cubic meters of water.
